This VS The OG Redmi 1s? on performance and daily basis performance? anybody? (Also the battery life)

I'd compare it with the Redmi 1, since it's much more similar in terms of hardware

This wont sell online as the online buying consumer require specs above that. They have to sell in hardstores and it would sell like hot cake but then bringing it to hardstore would increase the price in the first place.

then how did the redmi 1s sell ? it had worse specs. when people buy sub 100$ phones they don't look at specs n processors.
it has a 720p screen , a good GPU and 2000 mah battery. pretty decent if you ask me.

it had mediatek variant as well, now we have leadcore with mali GPU , probably better than old mediatek chips.

This would be confusing for some consumers with Redmi 2 and 2A.

it's basically meant to confuse , so that most people just buy a redmi based on price. after all paying 80$-90$ most people won't be looking at specs.

I haven't really heard of this variant, but this seems interesting.

They announced it just a few hours ago, plus they've done this kind of variant before with the Mi 2

This phone will rule the US$100 market

Sure, people in US wanted, they could order it from china etailer, it will work fine with Att and Tmobile network. I would say for someone who use their phone more heavily, Redmi Note 4G is better, since it comes with 2GB of memory. I got one and it's working quite well with Tmobile in San Francisco area, getting HPSA+ speed of 12 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. Just make sure to buy FDD-LTE (China Unicom version).

Good luck on profit margin. Need to sell 1 billion just to generate 100 million in profit. Too much work for no gain.

Looks like a cheap iPhone 5c with Android.
